Top 10 most read articles on Mortgage Solutions this week – 27/10/2017
One tucked away element of the government’s consultation to improve the house buying process caught attention this week.

The possibility of government banning referral fees paid between estate agents and brokers for clients shook much of the broker community and prompted strong opinions.

Another fierce debate took place on the issue of being directly authorised or an appointed representative, with many reader comments outlining other positives and negatives.

And with concerns about certain areas seeing a housing bubble formed, experts gave their views on whether a house price crash was a realistic possibility.
